Tsitsipas doubles down

After his victory in 2019, Stefanos Tsitsipas won his second title in a row at the Open 13 Provence. The Greek beat Felix Auger-Aliassime 6/3 6/4 in 1h26.

Stefanos Tsitsipas is undefeated in Marseille since 2018. Even better, during his victorious trips to the Open 13 Provence in 2019 and 2020, the Greek has not lost a single set. He has now won 8 matches and 16 sets in a row.
Felix Auger-Aliassime, who is two years younger, is bound to be envious of this course, as he has yet to win a trophy in five finals on the Tour.
But this Sunday, Stefanos Tsitsipas was definitely too strong. From the start, the Greek took the lead, giving "FAA" no chance in the first set (6/3).

All week long, Felix Auger-Aliassime had managed impressive comebacks. The Canadian even saved match points in the first and second rounds. But against the defending champion, the situation was not the same. Auger-Aliassime tried to react. In the second set, when Stefanos Tsitsipas broke him with an impeccable backhand passing shot, the Canadian even had a surge of pride, allowing him to break in the next set (3/3).

"The 3rd after Rosset and Enqvist

A late equaliser, insufficient to really reverse the trend. A few minutes later, Stefanos Tsitsipas won 6/3 6/4, showing obvious joy.
This is the third time since the tournament's inception in 1993 that a player has managed to win the Open 13 Provence two years in a row. Before Stefanos Tsitsipas, Marc Rosset and Thomas Envqist were the only players to have achieved this feat.

During the presentation of the trophies, the two players showed mutual respect, reminding us that this first final between them on the circuit would undoubtedly be the first of many.
It's getting harder and harder to play against you! "Félix Auger-Aliassime acknowledged.

" I am very happy to win again hereStefanos Tsitsipas, winner of the 28th edition, continued. I like this tournament, the draw is always strong, which allows me to compete with great players like Felix today. That's what I need if I want to win Grand Slams one day. "

After greeting his clan, Stefanos Tsitsipas also congratulated his opponent before thanking the tournament director, Jean-François Caujolle, who had given him a wild-card in 2017 when he was ranked 205th in the world. The beginning of a beautiful story.
